Abstract : Fluid mechanics experiments were performed to obtain information applicable to an open-cycle, coaxial-flow, gaseous nuclear rocket engine. In this engine concept, gaseous nuclear fuel and a surrounding stream of seeded hydrogen propellant pass coaxially through a reactor chamber. The flow was simulated in the present experiments by multi-component, constant-temperature, coaxial-flow jets in short chambers. The flow was studied using flow visualization techniques and concentration measurements.
